Description

Centennial Hop

Flowers and citrus most evident. A medium aroma with mid to high bittering value makes it a dual purpose choice. Released in 1990, Centennial is among the most popular hop used by US craft brewers today. The variety is sometimes called the super Cascade though its citrus aromas are lighter than those in Cascade. Acceptable for bittering.
Aroma: Medium intense floral, citrus and grapefruit tones.
Info: 9.5-11.5% Alpha Acids • Domestic • Dual Purpose Hop

Columbus Hop

Also known as CTZ (Columbus/ Tomahawk/ Zeus), Columbus is a half sister to Nugget and is a super high alpha variety. Columbus is used as a bittering hop with an intense, pungent aroma. CTZ has a high resistance to mildew and other disease. High on the bittering scale yet also valued for its oil content creates a hop that is an interesting dichotomy of sharp and herbal, suprisingly pleasant aroma.
Aroma: Specific aroma descriptors include black pepper, licorice, curry and subtle citrus.
Info: 14-16% Alpha Acids • Domestic • Dual Purpose Hop

Willamette Hop

Released in 1976 from the USDA breeding program, Willamette is a triploid seedling of English Fuggle. For years, it was the most widely grown aroma variety in the US. It is named after Oregon’s Willamette River which runs through the heart of the state’s hop growing region.
Aroma: Specific aroma descriptors include floral, incense, and elderberry.
Info: 4.5-6.5% Alpha Acids • Domestic • Finishing Hop
